Thanks for the free publicity, SNL!

Texas Republican Dan Crenshaw got the last laugh Tuesday, easily being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives after being mocked for his war injury days earlier on “Saturday Night Live.”
Crenshaw, 34, was favored to beat Democrat Todd Litton to win the seat being vacated by Republican Ted Poe before last weekend’s “SNL” episode in which castmember Pete Davidson made fun of his appearance, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Crenshaw won with 53 percent of the vote compared to Litton’s 44.4 percent, according to Politico.
During a “Weekend Update” segment, Davidson said Crenshaw looked like “a hitman in a porno movie,” when he referred to the veteran’s black eyepatch. Davidson continued, “You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie. I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever.
